A road hump or bump is dangerous to health and wealthIn India, the roads inside the city, town, and villages have many humps or bumps as speed breakers for the purpose of safety to the pedestrians. Such humps have no specified shape. Some are semi-round, some are square, some are triangular in shape, some are with extraordinary height, and some are slippery. And the humps without white or yellow markings are not visible at night.
These humps are very dangerous to the riders and the vehicles. The jerks during the jump on a hump affect the spines of the rider. Four wheelers with less ground clearance get stuck and have their bottom damaged. Two-wheeler riders lose their control and fall. At times, pillion riders are thrown away from the seat.
A day before yesterday, at night, I and my husband had a miraculous escape from a hump where we both had a high jump. We both fell and sustained minor injuries with little damage to our Scooty Honda Activa.
Why not we have a standard design for road humps to ensure safety to the vehicle riders and the vehicles? Your good suggestions, please.
Also, post your bitter experiences on road humps.
